Previous-Generation Embedded Controllers with Windows OS

  • Embedded controllers based on older architectures
  • Not recommended for new designs

To help engineers and scientists meet more complex challenges with their PXI systems, National Instruments takes advantage of the latest developments in the computing industry to offer new PXI embedded controllers at a regular pace.

NI uses its close and long-term working relationship with the two major processor manufacturers to choose processors and chipsets for PXI embedded controllers with long-term availability. Starting at the product release, NI PXI embedded controllers are generally available on the market for five years and often longer.

For new applications with long-term availability requirements, NI recommends selecting the latest controllers to obtain the longest life from a specific design.

For applications that need longer availability for an NI embedded controller than the standard availability, National Instruments recommends engaging the NI Hardware Services team to explore possible support options.
